Campeau Drive Extension Opens Ahead of Schedule for Pedestrians, Cyclists, and Vehicles

The city is pleased to announce that Campeau Drive from Country Glen Way to Didsbury Road is now fully open. Last week, sidewalks and cycling lanes opened for use from the Winterset Drive roundabout to the Kanata Commons. Grab your bike, take a walk or a drive through the completed new project!

Completed ahead of schedule, the Campeau Drive Extension creates an important connection to new developments and businesses and improves capacity in a key commuting corridor.

The project included the construction of a four-lane road, segregated cycling lanes, sidewalks, a roundabout at Winterset Road, two signalized intersections at Kanata Commons and Didsbury Road and a new bridge over the Carp River.

This project is part of the affordable road network outlined in the City’s Transportation Master Plan. The approved budget for this project was $32 million.

In the coming weeks, residents can expect to see minor final work and cleanup throughout the project site. This includes minor landscaping and minor sewer work as well as the installation of a small section of pedestrian railing along the multi-use pathway. There will be no traffic or pedestrian impacts during this work.
